...here is an easy, comfy, hands-free outfit as you go insane trying to find the best deals while shoving people out of the way. As you do all this I will be putting up my Christmas decorations and drinking hot chocolate with my kids. That's right, I can't handle the Black Friday madness.
If you are in my area skip over to Homespun Treasures and pick up the coziest fur scarf ever. My neck is a happy and warm neck today.
Another pattern combination...I can't help myself, I just love how much fun and creativity it adds to an outfit.
If you don't love the idea of wearing patterns together...simply don't. Layer a similar outfit by using a solid button down shirt with a patterned sweater or vice-versa. Whatever you wear, you should feel pretty in it; because life is too short and every person deserves it.
Like I have said before; a knit dress and leggings is one of the comfiest outfits ever. And this one is no exception. Adding a jacket and accessories makes it appropriate for work and dress up occasions.
Just wondering; do you prefer this type of outfit or dress pants for work?
Does the idea of having your family pictures taken strike fear in your heart; wondering if the kids will be on their best behavior? Stress; because nobody has anything great to wear? Just plain and simple freaking out?
Well here a few tips on styling your family's photo shoot and hopefully relieve some your stress. The kids behavior I can't help you with. I have my own to deal with. Sorry.
Be creative, interesting and detailed.
Gone are the days of being matchy-matchy; the goal is to have everyone compliment each other. Family photos will have a lot more depth and interest when you add texture and layers.
With a family of six there is more thought process involved as you obviously have more people to dress. I wanted to give this family a style and "feel" to their photos that truly reflects who they are.
I started by going through the family's closets and choosing a complimentary color theme and then adding pattern and neutrals. Pay attention to the small details; notice the polka dots and stripes throughout the picture. This creates a uniform look and is pleasing to the eye. Depth is created in this photo by adding lots of texture and layers.
